At Burman, we aim to use the pupil premium in creative ways to maximise the benefit for vulnerable learners in our school, in order to close the gaps in learning, educational experiences and progress.
We are committed to early intervention and have always extended our pupil premium support to nursery to include the younger siblings of vulnerable learners in main school.
We have carefully planned a variety of ways to provide support and help as many children as possible reach their full potential. These methods include:
- Extra teaching assistant support in all year groups, to focus on reading, phonics and writing
- Extra reading at lunchtime to boost progress for pupil premium children
PE and Sport Premium
Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.
Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. The PE and sport premium grant funding should be used by schools towards these aims.
